Zack Snyder has recently confirmed that his director’s cut of Justice League will no longer release as a 4-part miniseries, but will only be released as a 4-hour long movie instead.
The Snyder Cut of Justice League was originally slated to be released as a four-part miniseries on HBO Max alongside the 4-hour long movie but now according to Snyder, the film will only be released as a movie.
This was confirmed on Zack Snyder’s Vero account when he was asked whether the film was still going to air as a miniseries on HBO Max.
Zack Snyder’s Justice League Ditches the Miniseries Format
So now that the Snyder Cut has ditched the miniseries format it seems that fans will have quite the viewing experience ahead of them considering that the film will be the longest comic-book film to date clocking in at around 4 hours.
I don’t really think this will really change anything for the movie as it was originally planned for there to be a four-hour movie version of the Snyder Cut anyway.
It is curious however as to why they are all of a sudden decided to just release it as a movie now. It could be that Snyder never wanted Justice League to be a miniseries so now they are backtracking on the miniseries format for the Snyder Cut.
Zack Snyder’s Justice League stars Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Ciarán Hinds as Steppenwolf, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon, as well as Harry Lennix as Martian Manhunter, Jared Leto as Joker, and Ray Porter as Darkseid joining the cast in new scenes that weren’t in the theatrical version.
